RUMC SMART GOALS
- Develop one worship event per quarter that ministers directly to the outside community so that we “Profess our Faith” by our actions. Start November 1, 2013 to more effectively connect with our surrounding community. Worship, Outreach/Nurture and Education need to meet to develop first steps.
- Within 90 days form (and train) a group of RUMC persons who will begin a relations with visitors to:
- Welcome each new visitor while in the building for worship
- Obtain contact information
- Follow up within a week of their visit to our worship
- Have a sponsor for the prospective member so that each person feels welcome with the love of Jesus.
Provide a minimum of two distinct types of worship each week with a quarterly emphasis on a particular audience, so that we increase average worship attendance by 15% by 9-1-2014.
